I would check with IBM on that. From my understanding from IBM is that TSM
is supported with zones only if the TSM client is installed within the local
zone. I do not think backing up the local zones through the global zone is

Let's see if I got the whole picture right...

To summarize,

ie on a practical example using the following template:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE zone PUBLIC "-//Sun Microsystems Inc//DTD Zones//EN" 
    DO NOT EDIT THIS FILE.  Use zonecfg(1M) instead.
<zone name="dbsz8005" zonepath="/zones/dbsz8005" autoboot="true">
  <network address="" physical="ce0"/>
  <filesystem special="/zones/virtual-filesystems/dbsz8005/var"
directory="/var" type="lofs">

/ would be the only filesystem that we could backup from within the zone
but we would have to use tsm to backup /dev, /var and else thru the global
zone client ... guess after all with our current setup, we should keep
backuping everything thru the global zone and develop a process for users to
requests backup restore thru the unix admins instead of a self service model
as we don't want them to access the global and they would in any case be
confuse with the filesystem structure being completly differently presented
within the global.

dbsz8005 #mount -v

Mario, how do you present your filesystems to oracle ? Are you using raw
devices ?
